Drums, Production, Voice
Tres Hodgens has been playing drums professionally for over 20 years with different bands across several genres. He started playing at age 5 and by age 13 was playing for various worship teams in Hawaii and Southern California. He can and has played styles as varied as Pop/Rock, Jazz, Afro Cuban, Latin Jazz, Reggae, Hip Hop, Blues & Funk. He is as equally at home playing straight ahead Jazz as he is playing Afro Cuban rhythms.
Tres’ impeccable timing and style has earned the attention from several notable artists such as Lester Abrams (writer for the Doobie Brothers), Billy Davis & Marilyn McCoo, and Black Mambo (Afro Cuban & Latin Jazz). He plays with several bands and is currently working with The Sully Band (Blues, funk and Soul), Jazz artist Deborah Galan & Silk , The Brad Rambur Band and East go West (top 40 covers and more) and continues to play local venues and corporate events.
As a Hip Hop artist, Tres is known as Sojourn; an emcee, producer and all around live performer. He has produced tracks recorded & verses for other artists including Braille, Ohmega Watts, Theory Hazit, Blame One, Ras Kass and Myka 9 of Freestyle Fellowship.
Since the release of his debut solo album Sojournalism: The Summer Articles he’s partnered with Illect Recordings & started working on his upcoming beat tape titled Tabula Rasa and released an EP titled The Dark Room.
